43. Consignment ~ JH ~ WWII Era Double Edged M-3 Style Knife. Reportedly modified for U.S. Rangers in Great Britain. Similar knife in Mike Silvery’s WWII book, on page 45. I have only seen two of these in all of my travels. I forget how the one in Mike’s book was marked, but this one has G4 stamped into the blade, guard and pommel. $595
44. Consignment ~ DS ~ Vietnam Era SOG 6” Recon Presentation. Aluminum fixtures blade appears to be unsharpened. Mostly blue with a small amount of plumb at the guard. Finish is 100%, however, it is a rather dull blue or polished blue. This may clean off, but I HAVE NOT TRIED it since it is not my knife. Minty handle, guard, pommel, sheath and stone. Hard to upgrade this knife. $2600
45. Consignment ~ DS ~ 1/15 ~ Case V-42. No question that it is the best that I have ever seen! The blade retains 100% of the original bluing. The factory Case edge is the only sharpening that it has ever had. The blackened guard retains 98% of its finish. The handle is perfect. The pommel has 100% of its finish. The original long scabbard is 99% with the only staining being where the knife set in it. It would be nearly impossible to upgrade this knife and sheath. I saw one that sold on Ebay for $9750, and (in my opinion) it was not as nice…
46. Consignment ~ DS ~ 10/23 ~ Richtig WWII Fighting Knife. Bright blade is 6 1/8” long. Blade shows careful sharpening. Only the smallest amount of corrosion at the ricasso. Brass guard & pommel. Proper “2” ALFRED CORNISH, OMAHA, NEB. Scabbard. All aspects are intact. This is a VERY nice example of the Richtig WWII fighter, in excellent condition overall.
47. Consignment ~ DF ~ WWII Conversion of a 1918 LF&C Handle and a USN KA-BAR MKII Blade. Guard on LF&C handle has been cut slightly for left hand carry in a WWII plastic U.S.N. sheath that has been modified with a leather frog and belt loop. A very interesting conversion that made a very effective weapon out of a KA-BAR MKII. Blade is full and retains most all of its original black finish. Careful sharpening. 1918 LF&C handle retains all of the original knuckle points and the pointed pommel. Many feel that this is the way the 1918 knife should have been made in the first place….one of the best conversions that I have seen. $575
48. Consignment ~ DF ~ WWII U.S.M.C. MKII Camillus N.Y. Blade Marked. Full blade shows some sharpening and a few small pits. Blade retains about 60% of its black finish. Brown handle is 100% solid. Guard & pommel are tight. Original leather sheath in excellent condition.
49. Sale pending ~ Consignment ~ DF ~ WWII Camillus U.S. Coastguard Rope Knife. Cole’s III, Page 121. Serif type stamping. Full bright blade has some careful sharpening but no grinding or deep corrosion. Picked wood scales have no cracks or chips. Bail is intact. Very good plus overall.
50. Consignment ~ DF ~ Camillus TL-29. I believe this to be a post WWII (Likely Korea or Vietnam) Era knife. Similar to Cole’s III, Page 125. Plastic scales. Brass liners. Full blade appears unsharpened. Screwdriver blade unsharpened as well. Bail is slightly bent.
51. Consignment ~DF~ 6/5 ~ Vietnam Era U.S. M-1917 Trench Gun Bayonet. Gen-Cut Mfg. Absolutely MINT condition with proper 1917 scabbard—also mint. I have never seen a better one!
52. Consignment ~ DF ~ 1/1 ~ WWII Era USAAF Pilot’s Knife by Camillus Cutlery. Full Blade has a small nick on the cutting edge. Careful sharpening. Solid handle, no cracks or dings. Could be a replacement sheath.
53. Consignment ~ DC ~ Very nice example of a Frank Richtig WWII Fighter. 7” blade is in near perfect condition, as is the guard, handle and pommel. Scabbard appears to me to be a period replacement, made of tooled harness leather. A “V” for victory is also tooled on the front. Snap strap is intact. This is a very nice example of a classic WWII knife. $2700
54. Consignment ~ DC ~ 11/27 ~ This is the exact knife that was illustrated in Cole’s III, First Edition. Later Cole’s Book III printings replaced this knife with a picture of Mr. Cole and one of his knives. This knife was provided to Mr. Cole by long time collector, and friend to Mt. Cole, Ernie Modlin. (One of the good guys.) Heavy 8 1/8” double edge blade. Heavy steel guard has a leather backing. Handle is leather washers, held on with a threaded nut. Heavy harness leather scabbard. Letter from Frank Trzaska included with the knife.
55. Consignment ~ DC ~ 10/30 ~ WWII USMC Raider Stiletto, Camillus Mfg. This knife retains the factory needle tip on the full, unsharpened 7 ¼” blade. (I haven’t seen that very often over the years.) The scroll USMC and the makers information are all there. The blade has a lot of very tiny pitts on both sides. They are very tiny and most look like spotting rather than pitts. The handle and guard are in about 99% condition with only a very small amount of corrosion where the guard contacts the sheath. I see zero ion leaching on the handle or guard (unbelievable, but true!) The original sheath is solid. Snap strap is missing the male snap. 3/8” cut at the throat. Belt hanger is intact. EUGENE MORRISON KNIGHT USMCR, WWII DOG TAGS ARE ATTACHED. Also, included are some personal newspaper clippings, patches, and other paper memorabilia belonging to Mr. Knight—Very cool to have…Nice to put a name with a knife. No paperwork tying him directly to the Raiders.
56. Consignment ~ DC ~ 10/23 ~ WWII Era Kennedy Arms Fighting Knife. The 7 7/8” double edge blade retains about 98% of its original blue and appears unsharpened. Brass and leather guard. Wood slab handles. Excellent condition scabbard is marked 227S at the top. This set is in excellent plus condition overall and a tough knife to find in this condition.
57. Consignment ~ DM ~ Western G-46 8”. Blade is blued with mirror finish, but has some discoloration. Appears to be original bluing. Appears unsharpened. One very tiny ding in the center of the blade. Steel butt cap is also blued. Handle is in excellent condition. Unfortunately this knife has no sheath.
58. Consignment ~ DM ~ 10/23 ~ WWII USN Mark II UDT Plated Blade Dive Knife. Blade has some scratches and has been sharpened. Blade is not marked. Blued guard is stamped but lightly. Stamped out KA-BAR USN MK 2. Pommel is blued, handle is in very good condition. Comes with USN MKII plastic sheath.
59. Consignment ~ DM ~ 10/23 ~ USN Mark II. Blade marked US Navy, RH PAL 37. Full blade appears unsharpened, but has many spots of rust. This knife has been rehandled with stacked leather washers and red and grey spacers at each end. Handle has nicely beveled edges. Feels good in the hand. Guard and pommel are aluminum. Pommel is somewhat interesting in design and is pinned on. Comes with plastic USN MK II sheath.
60. Consignment ~ DM ~ Shop or Theater Made Fighting Knife. Blade is Bowie style 7” long. Made from ¼” stock at the hilt. Blade is thinner and well made. Guard and butt cap appear to be made of stainless steel or nickel. Guard is 2 ¾” and diamond shaped at both ends. Handle is made of black and white spacers with middle sections may be made from black fiber material. Butt cap is nicely made champagne cork shaped. Sheath is double stitched heavy but soft pliable leather and original to the knife. Really nice knife.
61. Consignment ~ DM ~ Western G46-6 Shark blue blade, full blade, nice handle but the guard is loose. Not a high grade knife. Rough overall.
62. Consignment ~NK~ 8/28 ~ Vietnam Era (1973) Round trip bolo—unissued. In the original box and wrapper. It is not mine so I did not open it. I’m sure that it is mint. Canvas sheath.
63. Consignment ~NK~ 8.28 ~ 1918 Plumb Bolo with proper A-K-CO sheath. Blade retains 80% or better of the bluing, and has been carefully sharpened. Grips appear to me to be replacements.
64. Consignment ~NK~ 8/28 ~ Springfield Armory 1905 Bayonet, but down by A.F.H. ( American Fork and Hoe )and plated (presumably for parade use.) Blade and black grips are mint. USN MK1 cut down scabbard. Very handsome piece.
65. Consignment ~NK~ 6/12 ~ WWII MK-II, KA-BAR Mfg. Parkerized blade is full and shows only careful sharpening. Handle is near mint. Proper U.S.N. plastic scabbard has a small crack on the right side, near the tip.

Written by Bill Walters with input from Vince Coniglio, this is the most comprehensive book to date on M3’s and M4’s.
This book was proudly printed in the USA.
The cost of the book is $116, including Priority Mail shipping for one book. For those of you wanting more than one copy or residing outside the US, please contact Bill to get a shipping estimate.
This additional information came from fellow collector Kerry Gordon. (thanks Kerry)
I just thought that you might like to know that you weren't the only one ever caught with one of these - not only do I have the French version but I also have one with the Belgian Rampant Lion stamped into the hilt.
The real give away with these is that the blade tang doesn't run all the way through the pommel nut, there's about two threads empty at the end of the nut. The other thing is that the brass pommel nuts are painted with gloss black paint rather than blackened.
Someone spent a lot of time and effort on these, the blades are tinned under the blackening and the hilts are blackened brass that is reasonable well checkered.
